On his travels to college, Ronald Reagan would pass through the unique community of Princeton. The early Massachusetts settlers’ influence is reflected in Princeton's picturesque architecture, stately homes, and comfortable tree-lined streets. Historically, many Princeton homes were part of the underground railroad which gave shelter to many runaway slaves before the Civil War.
